When "bad" means "good"?

As you recall, the initial result from CCNU showed tumor growth. We decided to continue with a higher dose, but really, my expectation was pretty minimal. In fact, the expectation was SO low that today, when I was told about how my tumor had grown slightly (smaller than the last time it grew), I was thrilled! Yes it grew bigger, but less so than the last time?!? Party time!

At this point, because this tumor cannot be stopped entirely, I'm definitely enjoying one day at a time. In fact, assuming I still qualify for the next cycle, we might try to hit the chemo a little more intensely.

Apology to those who have recently called or checked in. I will touch base soon. However, I just celebrated the event by eating a big cookie, and now it's time to sleep....
